Our Coaching Philosophy

From first-time runners to hardened veterans, from PRs to National titles. Everyone has a place here at the Run Club! Our coaches will work with you all season with guided workouts and training plans that fit your individual needs upon request. All coaching is student-run, meaning our coaches are club runners themselves! Run Club at IU has a long and successful history, and we hope that you can be a part of that with the help of our coaching group!
